Very short entry today, I’m not much of a music reviewer. I do know what I like, and Mahler’s 2nd Symphony, “The Resurrection Symphony,” is definitely in the “like” category.
When I watch TV, it’s generally PBS, and Performance Today is one of my must-watches.
Sunday night they had A Concert for New York, actually performed and taped at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center on Saturday, but shown on 9/11. I don’t think I can actually put it up on the blog, but it is available online.
This is one of those symphonies that has not only the orchestra, but solo voices and a chorus. They sang in German, but with a translation on the screen. All that is created dies. All that dies is resurrected. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
